I’m just a temporary Vegan/vegetarian. I really tried to like tofu, and the closest I got is the sausage flavored bits of TVP that I put under my breakfast garlic pasta. I’ll be glad to get back to real meat and cheese.
I’ll be done with the full year without any meat, cheese, alcohol or caffeine on Valentine’s. I may still have mostly vegetarian meals often, but I will appreciate an occasional whole egg over easy and a sandwich of very rare flank steak with aged cheddar (and romaine and tomato) on good whole grain bread. I have loved seafood when visiting coastal cities, so I’ve resolved to make an effort to get fresh seafood in Phoenix (even if I overnight it in).
